Kermit the Frog Free Crochet Pattern – Amigurumi

I’ve always been a big fan of The Muppets which started when I was young. Every year at Christmastime, my family and I would love to watch A Muppet Christmas Carol together. I always felt a sense of nostalgia anytime I saw Kermit the Frog on TV or at Disney World. When I was in elementary school, we put on a production of A Christmas Carol. The kids stage version of the show is very similar to the Muppet version with similar songs and dialogue. My sister who is 3 years older than me was cast as Bob Cratchit. Unfortunately, a few days before the show she came down with pneumonia and could not perform in the show. I already knew some of her lines and songs so I jumped in as Bob Cratchit just days before our performances (the show must go on!). Years later, we always think of this story while watching The Muppets so I knew I had to make my own little crochet Kermit plush.

For this pattern, I used Premier Parfait Chunky yarn (which is my favorite yarn) for a soft pastel look. Click here to get Premier yarn for this project. If you enjoy this pattern, please give me a follow on social media and let me know what other free patterns you would love to see! Happy crocheting 🙂

  • Polyfil – fiberfill stuffing
  • Felt for face details – black, red, pink & green

  • Scissors
  • Stitch marker
  • Sewing pins

ABBREVIATIONS

  • CH – chain
  • SC – single crochet
  • INC – single crochet increase (2 SC in each stitch)
  • DEC – decrease (I use the invisible decrease in all of my creations for a cleaner look)
  • FO – fasten off
  • Magic ring – Make a loop, leaving a long tail to work with. Insert hook in the center of loop, yarn over, and draw up a loop. Yarn over, pull through to make the first chain (this does not count as a stitch). Continue to crochet over the loop and tail with the number of stitches called for. There are many wonderful YouTube videos on how to make a magic circle if you are a visual learner! Always move your stitch marker to the last stitch in the round.

THIS PATTERN IS WORKED IN CONTINUOUS ROUNDS.
